Who can register ?
- Commonwealth Government employees can register as a member. As a member, you can access all available features. You can also be a community owner and invite other members and guests to your community.
- State government employees can register as a guest. You'll be added to the demonstration community to try out GovTEAMS, at no cost. Community owners can invite you to their communities. As a guest, you can only access features in the community you're invited to.
- State government employees can buy a state owner account for $350 per user per annum (at least two owners are needed to create a community). As an owner, you can access all available features. You'll be able to create communities and invite other members or guests for free.
If you're a local government, private sector or Government Business Enterprise employee, you can only be invited to access a community as a guest. As a guest, you'll be able to take part in the community you have been invited to join. But you can't create communities or invite/remove members.
*If you're a contractor with an Australian Public Service email address you can register as a member.
